With the Holidays right around the corner I bet chances are pretty good that you have the ingredients pictured above in your pantry or if not I bet you will soon. These ingredients pictured together for me immediately bring to mind that good ‘ol classic Holiday dish, Green Bean Casserole. It has been present on the table at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas for as far back as I can remember. When my husband and I begin talking about the Holidays he always brings up the food that he is looking forward to and Green Bean Casserole is at the top of his list. While Green Bean Casserole is a staple around the dinner table for the Holidays we always have a couple of family members that discuss the fact that every holiday we have the same dishes, they want to break out of the mold and not limit ourselves to Ham, Turkey and Stuffing so it is pretty common to find pizza or even enchiladas at our dinner table.
With Thanksgiving a little over a month away I was thinking about Green Bean Casserole and what I could do to put my own twist on it. I mean it is already a casserole which by definition is a mixture of food cooked in a casserole dish so of course there could always be more items added to it and #ThisIsMyTwist.
My idea consists of adding cubed chicken breasts and bacon, because, well it is bacon so I took the Original Green Bean Casserole ingredients which are:
2 cans (10.5 oz. each) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tsp. soy sauce
- ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
- 4 cans (14.5 oz. each) any style Del Monte® Green Beans, drained
- 2 2/3 cups French’s® Crispy Fried Onions
Add 1 lb. of chicken breasts cubed, 1 cup of chopped, cooked bacon. The instructions are the same as the original recipe below, except add the chicken and bacon in step 1 and make sure you check the temperature of the chicken and it is at least 165 degrees in step 2.
- Stir soup, milk, soy sauce, black pepper, beans, chicken, bacon and 1-1/3 cups onions in 3-qt. casserole.
- Bake at 350°F, uncovered, for 25 min. or until bean mixture is hot and bubbling and chicken is cooked to 165 degrees. Stir mixture. Sprinkle with remaining onions.
- Bake for 5 min. or until onions are golden brown.
When it is all done you have a yummy Green Bean Casserole with a twist of Bacon and Chicken and I bet this is a change that you and your family are sure to love. Check out all of the other twists on traditional dishes here and comment below telling me how you twist.
